...but Cashman wasn't. The Yankees bought a bigger truck. They have upped their offer for Cliff Lee to 7 years. No word on the average yearly salary, but it is thought to be less than the $23.3 million of the original offer. Yes, they seem to be bidding against themselves, but it appears they didn't want to be in a bidding situation with anyone and wanted to just blow everyone out of the water in one shot. No point in fooling around anymore, there is no longer any "Plan B." ...or C.

Another reason to want Andy Pettitte to return is Boston's new lineup. It contains 5 left-handed hitters. Sabbathia, Lee and Pettitte, left-handers all, will go a long way towards neutralizing that power.
